Join a hands-on cooking class to make and eat soba (buckwheat noodles) from scratch in Ouchi-juku, a historic post town from the Edo period (1603-1867). But in Ouchi-juku, instead of chopsticks, you’ll do as the locals do and eat your soba noodles with a stick of green onion! This Ouchi-juku specialty is known as “negi soba” (green onion soba), and it looks great in photos! After your noodle-making experience, you’ll climb up to a lookout for a panoramic view of the charming Ouchi-juku landscape.
